Since graduating from The University of Melbourne School of Dental Science in 1998, Dr. Donny has immersed himself in the field of Craniofacial Growth and Development. He first used the Myofunctional Research Company’s Trainer System in 2001, as an effective early intervention therapy for his pre-orthodontic patients. Through years of continuing education, which he still relentlessly pursues, he has shifted the way he practices dentistry toward helping children to achieve their optimal functional health. In 2004, he co-founded The Dental Gallery, which rapidly became the largest dental practice in the suburb of Point Cook, West of Melbourne. He then founded The Dental Suites in 2012, located in the Eastern Melbourne suburb of Balwyn. In 2016, he co-founded an online-based retailer, named Sleep Focus, supplying scientific sleeping aids to health practitioners and the public. Now, with the majority of his patients being children, Dr. Donny has evolved into a Dentofunctional practitioner, helping and caring for those as young as newborn babies. He offers comprehensive approaches with a primary focus on the Orofacial Myofunctional paradigm, working alongside a network of like-minded practitioners, from neuro-chiropractors and otolaryngologists to breathing coaches and nutritionists. He has also lectured to dentists in Indonesia, for The University of Airlangga, on Myofunctional Orthodontics. In 2017, Dr. Donny co-founded Myofocus with Dr. Dan. With its first flagship clinic located in North Melbourne, it’s believed to be the first unique practice in Australia that specializes in Orofacial Myofunctional therapies, which include Waterlase Frenectomies, Orofacial Myology, and Myofunctional Orthodontics. The Myofocus System has been specifically designed to assist and steer growing children toward optimal functional health. Both Dr. Dan and Dr. Donny have learned from leaders in the industry and have great admiration for those who have come before them. They offer their thanks to many teachers including Dr. Skip Truitt, Dr. Steven Olmos, Dr. Tony Simeone, Dr. Chris Farrell, Professor John Mew, Dr. Noshir Mehta, Dr. Derek Mahony, Dr. Karen McCloy, Dr. Marjan Jones, and Sandra Coulson. Continuing education is a constant pursuit for both Dr. Dan and Dr. Donny
